Motor Vehicle vs. Pedestrian Accidents

With all of the rules of safe driving, speed limits, stop signs, traffic lights and marked pedestrian crosswalks a pedestrian accident should almost impossible. It takes either a deliberate decision to not follow the rules and break the law, or a disregard for the safety and rights of others to allow oneself to be so distracted that a driver could collide with a pedestrian. The reality is that cars collide with and injure over 100 thousand pedestrians each year. Statistics show that this kind of accident frequently occurs due to driver carelessness, or worse drunk driving. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident speak with a Los Angeles personal injury attorney and find out what your options are.

Have you been injured in a pedestrian accident?

Joggers, runners and other pedestrians have every right to cross streets or use the side of the road where there is no sidewalk and should be recognized by motorists. With the advent of cell phones and texting more drivers than ever before are unaware of what is going on outside of their vehicle. Pedestrian injuries are often serious or catastrophic. The cost in medical bills, lost income and pain and suffering can be tremendous. Personal injury law holds that a person injured through the carelessness of negligence of another should be compensated sufficiently to restore an injured person to their previous condition. In some cases an injured person may also be awarded punitive damages. It is the duty of a pedestrian accident lawyer at our firm to ensure that a pedestrian receive maximum compensation and in doing so set an example which will deter other drivers from such careless behavior.

Litigating a pedestrian accident requires investigation and accident reconstruction. Most claims for damages are settled outside of court, but where negotiation doesn't result in full compensation our legal team if fully prepared to proceed to trial. Call attorney David Shoop for a consultation concerning your accident.
